Another go-round

I'm excited to share about a new season of my life and our family. Before I had kids, I happily taught at Albany Christian School. I was the eighth grade homeroom teacher. I taught 7th and 8th grade Algebra and Pre-Algebra, Science, and PE, 8th grade Bible, and music for the whole school. Yep, I think that's it...

Well, very unexpectedly I received an email asking if I would be interested in returning to ACS to teach 7th and 8th grade math again. At first I thought it was very unlikely that I'd take the job. I had no desire to be working every day in addition to running my household and raising my children. Anyway, no reason to drag it out - it became apparent that God was leading me down this road after all. I am very excited! Allie will be able to join me and attend kindergarten there while I am teaching in the morning. I will have 2 classes of around 16 students total and an hour of prep. Man, this is going to be good!

I love jr. high students and have really missed working with them. I have often thought about my days of teaching those young teenagers. I came to the conclusion quite a while ago that I would be a very different teacher, now that I've had children. I can't wait to try out my "sea legs" now :)


  1. congrats, Erin! Becky and I were just talking about when / if she'll go back to teaching yesterday in the car...certainly an interesting decision. I'm glad you felt God's leading so clearly. Sounds like a pretty nice schedule too :-)

  2. So nice that you have this part-time work opportunity! A little bit of both worlds.

  3. You are going to be such a blessing to those kids and I hope you love it! Allie is going to love kindergarten, Mrs. Elliot is amazing!!!

  4. I'm glad the answer was clear!

    Congrats and have fun!
